Oh I thought it was different with the NHL, just like in the draft.

He got the honor of being a captain after last season and didn't play a single game with the C

I agree. I think it's silly for kids to pass up a pro-contract over a scholarship. For one your prime earning years as a hockey player happen at a younger age than most professions, get that money while you can. Two, universities aren't going anywhere, MSU will still exist when you retire from hockey, you can always go back. Three, the business/professional connections you gain by being a pro-athlete are far better than any networking event put on by a university.

I like Appleton.

He's another of the Jets "stealth" prospects (like Foley and Kraskovsky).

He's sort of a Swiss Army knife type of player - smart, skilled and versatile.

Like a lot of the Jets' prospects, his pro future will really be determined by opportunities. The Jets have such depth in forward prospects (that can play C), that they'll need to be moving some of them.

Other than playing hockey, nothing prevents you from working on your degree in the off season. I'm guessing the university lets one of their former players with a pro contract have full use of the training facilities over the summer.

That was thoroughly unexpected. Looking forward to seeing him with the Moose.

In a sense, you need to tack the hundreds of pages of the CBA to all of these contracts for them to be complete.

Wasn't it reported that Markov is doing just that--negotiating his own contract?

Am I the only one wondering why I keep seeing Jets players dressed in Nike gear only since the NHL moved from Reebok to Adidas? They used to wear all reebok. From a branding point of view, I'm a bit confused.

I have to wonder if Petan is on the outside looking in especially after this years draft.....didn't they draft a smallish forward ala Petan in the late rounds?

Skyler McKenzie? 5'8" 19 year old (D+1) who put up 1.16 p/g in the WHL last year with Portland. Mind you his 0.58 g/g is pretty nice.

Petan is more of a playmaker than a sniper. To compare, Petan's D+1 year he put up 1.79 p/g and 0.55 g/g. Petan was something extraordinary...hopefully he can port that to the NHL at some point.

Just stick them on a line with De Leo - the Portland Pipsqueaks.

Congratulations Mason!
Wow we have so much young talent. The Moose should be much improved this year.

Did he have a good Dev. Camp ?

Maybe playing with Connor and Rozlo at camp convinced him to go pro earlier than he was expected to.

I thought he was going to sign a 3 year ELC in March and play the last couple of weeks of the regular season. That way he would play his 3rd year of college still get tje same sining bonus and only be out 85 % of his moose pay check of 70 k.

Young players usually take time to transition to the pro game, so I wouldn't expect much for a while.

Point of the Moose is to develop Jets prospects. Appleton should get precedence on that basis. It's not just about contracts, but also about ice time.

Maybe because DeSalvo chose to sign elsewhere, the Jets pushed harder to get Appleton to turn pro?

Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
